    A black sixth grader at a Fairfax County, Virginia, private school said she was attacked by white classmates who then cut her hair while taunting her with racist insults this week. Amari Allen is a student at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, and she said the incident happened during recess Monday. Allen alleges that three white classmates attacked her on the playground and pinned her down against a slide. “They put my hands behind my back, put a hand over my mouth and they tried to cut my hair,” said Allen. She said the students were calling her hair “nappy”...

    Beth  touched on this yesterday, but I think the extraordinary nature of what's happening here needs to be highlighted repeatedly.  In an effort to bully the Supreme Court, a group of Senate Democrats are warning that if the conservative justices refuse to "heal" the court -- in this case, "healing" constitutes declining to take up a specific gun rights case -- the Court will face a "restructuring."  This is nothing less than a threat against the independent judiciary by hardcore partisans: Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental...

    Last Sunday’s London Marathon produced plenty of positive headlines. Eliud Kipchoge ran a new course record, Emily Sisson had an incredible marathon debut, runners set nearly 40 new Guinness World Records, and the event itself had more finishers than ever before (42,549) and passed the £1 billion mark in cumulative fundraising. But it was not all celebration for some runners, especially those who finished at the back of the pack. In the first year the race has offered an official 7:30 pacer—which should have made the race more inclusive—runners who finished toward the end reported experiencing some disturbing conditions. In...

    As Amnesty International obsessively targets Israel, it turns out that they should be paying more attention to what is going on way closer to home. Amnesty International has a “toxic” working environment, with widespread bullying, public humiliation, discrimination and other abuses of power, a report has found. A review into workplace culture, commissioned after two staff members killed themselves last year, found a dangerous “us versus them” dynamic, and a severe lack of trust in senior management, which threatened Amnesty’s credibility as a human rights champion. It added: “As organisational rifts and evidence of nepotism and hypocrisy become public knowledge...

    An 11-year-old Delaware boy with the last name Trump will be addressed by a different name in school going forward after his name led to constant teasing, according to a report. Joshua Trump has no family ties to the sitting U.S. president but their shared surname has caused trouble for the boy, his parents told WPVI. “He was getting ridiculed and bullied for the fact that his last name was Trump,” his father, Bobby Berto, told the outlet. His mother, Megan Trump, claimed her son was being verbally harassed. "They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call...

    In the age of anti-bullying and zero tolerance, a disturbing type of bullying is going completely unrecognized. LGBTQ activists have set up anti-bullying programs that your children are required to attend in all public schools. Not only do these programs contain the usual "be nice" directives but they also incorporate graphic sexual information about gay sex and queerness in order to break down your child's morality and defenses and remove his religious teaching. That's what anti-bullying programs really do. Understand that anti-bullying activists don't care one whit how their own acolytes treat anyone. What they care about is brainwashing...

Hundreds of posters on social media said they would boycott his restaurant because it was a local venue to Blackburn, who is running for a seat in the U.S. Senate against former Democratic Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen. “People have posted they love our food,...
